almost wordless wednesday on a thursday (ha!)

our little gussy has a thing for squirrels....
a love/hate thing...
he can't stand the real life little rodents running around outside...
but his favorite stuffed squeaky babies are all squirrels....
he has 2 grey ones and a black one...
i decided that there is no better halloween costume
for gus than a little grey squirrel!!
here is gus modeling his costume for all of you!
cute lil pink tongue!
seriously lady, how many pics you need?!?
momma, i'm bored!
the second i took the costume off, he attacked it! i don't think he liked it as much as i did...
after the attack, he was back to happy pup!
does anyone else dress their pup up for halloween or am i a crazy lady?!



p.s. who watched SYTYCD last night?
i love the try outs.
what about GLEE?! anyone watch this show?
i just discovered it last week, i'm addicted!! love it!

Gus looks super cute!

I'm thinking about dressing Layla up, but I have no idea what to get her. I haven't really seen any cute costumes for big dogs! =(

Miss Kriss said...

Okay, can I just tell you -- Gus, in that costume, is seriously the cutest thing that I think I have ever seen in my life!! I freaking love it! We have a Corgi, so it's kind of difficult to dress him up for Halloween...you know...the really big ears and really short legs kind of make it difficult...but, I am always on the lookout for the perfect costume. And, I think these photos motivate me even more! Love it, girlie! :)

Megan said...

Oh my word - the little squirrel hands holding the nuts is TOO CUTE!

I loved the tryouts last night on SYTYCD - I already have some favorites! And I saw Glee for the first time - it was hilarious and I loved the music.

Shaina said...

OMG, this is hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erin said...

I am obsessed with that costume! So cute. I tried to dress Zoey up last year and she hated it. She is a bigger dog so it was hard to find her something. Petsmat had a ghost costume so I bought that took it home and put it on her. Unfortunatlly she didn't wear it for long since the constume looked more like a KKK outfit than a ghost...oops.

I am super obsessed with Glee already :)

Mrs. Potts said...

How super cute! I've never been one to dress up my dogs, but then anything over 12lbs just isn't as cute - can you imagine a Great Dane in a dress up outfit? Although Mr. Potts and I did see two Great Danes at the last Panthers game in jerseys.

KLaw said...

Bah ha ha! Thats sooooo funny!!

Micaela said...

OMG i am in looove with your puppy!!!!!! oh so cute!!!

the pic of gussy's bored face TOTALLY made my morning. Talk about perfect timing for a photo!!! :)

that is a darling outfit! i looove all dogs so i'm with you on dressing up our pets. haha they're like our babies! :) My puppy's name is Maverick (she's named for my faaaaave NBA team, the Dallas Mavericks) and i HAD to buy her a Mavericks jersey. See? we are alike annie! :)

btw- i love animals so much that i always get asked to be a judge at our Petco Halloween Costume Contest. I would totally take Gussy to it. :)

Whitney said...

How cute :) I am looking for Dog costumes for Big too!! YAY!! So your not the only crazy one... and if we are crazy, atleast we'll be crazy together!!

Thanks for the smiles :)

Jax said...

OMG! This is hilarious and adorable all at the same time! SO ADORABLE!! I was trying to think of what Gracie should be this year... Old Navy has some cute ones this year. We have an event locallly where people actually bring their pets in costume and they get judged! I'm thinking of entering Gracie this year!

And I bet we loved the same blonde girl on SYTYCD last night! Was her mom with her?! She was so adorable-cute smile and so much personality! I have Glee recorded and plan to watch it for the first time this weekend!

Thanks for the tips.. I'm really thinking I'll switch to ortho. I've heard good things compared to everything else. Gah, it's so nuts to have issues with such a tiny little pill. Sheesh! And you work at a law firm?! That could be a good or a bad thing depending where you work! haha! I didnt like my firm, but my boyfs mom is a legal assistant at a local one and LOVES it!!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Ashley said...

Just found your blog! And I love your halloween costume! Very cute. This is our first year with a little puppy, so we just may have to dress her up. She doesn't mind clothes, but we didn't ever dress her. So we'll see. :)

katie + bret said...

Oh.My.Gosh. That is HILARIOUS! Too precious. I adore it!! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Amber said...

Awww these pictures are awesome! So cute! I didn't have dogs until I married JD, then I inherited two and I couldn't love them more. Our chihuahua used to HATE being dressed up but I've gradually gotten her accustomed to it so I plan to attempt a costume this year. I'll letcha know how it goes!

Um, I'm obsessed with SYTYCD. That guy who did the interpretive dance with no music had me DYING laughing. I can't wait for the rest of the season. JD... notsomuch.

Also? Have I ever told you that you make me smile? Cause you do.

mommywonderland said...

Ok miss, your dog is so cute! Love the one where he looks like he's laughing...and I am an addict of SYTYCD! We have parties with friends once auditions are over and the show starts! (any reason for food and friends right:) ???

Becca said...

That is soooo super cute! I really like the little acorn too ha! We got two costumes for my parents shih tzu one year, superman and a devil! He HATED them!
